•Imo State Governor Okorocha

The Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha, has boasted of his achievements in the health sector in the state.

Governor Okorocha stated that his administration has built enough hospitals and the next government coming in only has to maintain it.

“Today I am proud to say that no governor would ever think about building any hospital again in the next 50 years because the issue of hospital in this land has been sealed, signed and delivered.

“With the two 1,000 bed hospital on Douglas road, the Somto hospital and the mother and child, the 27 General Hospitals, and the diagnostics centres, there will be no more hospitals to build in Imo State only to maintain”.

He stated this on Wednesday during the inauguration of the newly built Justice Oputa High Court Complex in Owerri, the state capital.

Governor Okorocha while listing his administration used the opportunity to apologise to judges and lawyers in the state for not meeting up with their demands and all they have beckoned on him for.

He said, “I have not met up with the demands of the judges of Imo State, neither I have I met up with all that they have asked me to do for them.

“But I believe that by the time they come into this office, they might forget and forgive that there is something better for the future than what we are asking for today”

The governor also promised lawyers and judges to clear up all outstanding salaries in the state.

“Before I leave next week I will make sure I clear all your outstanding which the CJ has reminded me about”. (Channels TV)
